[Excerpt] If bargaining is broad-based (in nonfragmented units) and if the parties have full resort to a reasonable panoply of economic weapons, the stakes usually will be too high for either side to press for impasse. But in the event of a breakdown in negotiations, the parties should be allowed to engage in a fair fight.
